Saint Louis University High School hosted the class 5 district 2 varsity girl’s playoffs Thursday evening. The Webster Grove Statesmen came out on top of the Cor Jesu Academy 64-34 to advance.
The story line to this matchup was the expectations from both teams. Webster Grove entered the evening with a 19-9 record. However Cor Jesu had less than a .500 record but was seeded 1 because they had the best head to head record in their division. In addition Cor Jesu had beaten Webster Grove in the regular season.
Although Cor Jesu scored first Webster answered with a baker’s dozen ending the first quarter 13-1. Cor Jesu came back in the second quarter with a baker’s dozen but Webster added 16 to go into halftime leading 29-14. The third quarter duplicated the second quarter scoring with Webster leading 45-27. The last quarter had Webster score a quarter high of 19 points and held Cor Jesu to 7 points.
Great ball control and backboard work was the secret to Webster’s success. Add to this Jaidah Stewart leading the Statesmen with 28 points.
Webster now advances to play Fox who also advance this evening next Wednesday. Fox has a 20-7 record. This game is taking place at Jefferson College.
